Companion PlantsSmall shrubs that need some protection work well under this tree, such as Lanarth White Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Lanarth White') or, for more color, the deep pink of Buttons 'N BowsTM Hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla 'Monrey'). Lenten Rose (Helleborus x hybridus Royal HertiageTM Strain) would also enjoy the protection of the canopy.
